by superstorm sandy. the request comes at a time when lawmakers are arguing how every dollar is spent. >>> our fourth story "outfront," an historic announcement. the supreme court decided today it will hear two constitutional challenges to same-sex marriage laws. if the court were to follow public opinion, the decision could come down in favor of gay and lesbian couples. recent polling shows 53% of americans think same-sex marriage should be legal. 46% say illegal. and on election day, voters in three states approved same-sex marriage. "outfront," mckay coppins, tim carney and maria cardona, cnn contributor and democratic strategist. this is kind of big news in all of this. tim, you saw the polls. now the supreme court will get involved in this. should this signal something to the republican party? should they say it's reached this level, we need to rethink our position on this? >> polls are one thing. there's also the fact most states don't have gay marriage yet and most of those that do, it was not put in by the will of the people. i'm a marylander. we did -- our state did vote for gay marri

in october. experts we spoke to said sandy had a significant impact on the numbers. >>> and new problems for susan rice. this is different than what you think i'm about to say. after weeks of criticism from republicans, she now faces scrutiny over her personal investments. stock holdings listed in her financial disclosure report raise a potential conflict of interest if she were to become a top diplomat. a conflict of interest, it's something democrats don't like. mary snow is "outfront." >> reporter: the latest controversy surrounding ambassador susan rice involves a major investment in the company that wants to build the controversial keystone xl pipeline. rice holds between $300,000 and $600,000 worth of stock in transcanada. the keystone pipeline would contact the tar sands oil development this canada to the u.s. gulf coast and if rice becomes secretary of state, any decision on it would fall under her jurisdiction. >> we need for the next secretary of state to be completely unburdened of any interest that could present a conflict or the appearance of a conflict. >> bob deans of the

york was hit hard by sandy, pointed out the irony of the request. it doesn't come at an oper tune time. will christie's move hurt his party or not? good to see both of you. let me ask you because i don't know you spoke early on about how well you thought you thought chris christie handled this storm, politically and every other way and now asking for federal funding and republicans trying to cut spending. is he hurting his own party in. >> i think whether you're a republican or democratic governor, you want to secure money from people who are not your own taxpayers but federal taxpayers. that's just a classic move. now, is he -- >> human nature, i guess. >> it sure is. is it undermining republicans in congress? it probably is. but frankly he's looking out for his own political future and really the only option. new jersey is in a very tight fiscal situation. partly because they have a balanced budget requirement. this is had a huge impact on the state economy. frankly, i think you see more situatictuations in which the governors are pitted against congressmen and they want that money t
